The concert opened a speech about the roots of the problems of cutting down forests Khimki, the arrest of Max and Leschi, then came to the stage a young group Tumen GetXFree.The texts of their songs perfectly suited to the situation: they sang about freedom, equality, justice.

Music and speech have attracted the attention not only political activists, but also local residents who came out for a walk in the park in good weather. Total on-site were about fifty students, there were many people from nearby houses, including mothers with children. Children danced to the music and autographs from the musicians, and their parents listened to songs and applauded approvingly.Hardcore seems to be unusual for the ear ordinary citizen, like the present: the audience to finish the concert kids asked to sing an encore for a long time not released from the scene. Asked when will the next concert.

But Tyumentsev attention to the issue of the Moscow attracted not only speeches and songs.Near the scene were displayed informplakaty, distributed magazines, newspapers and other materials.

Looking for something to do, but our voice is heard from afar, but only if it will affect many voices of discontent. Let's hope that the forest will survive, and the boys liberate "- action commented vocalist GetXFree Denis.
